EVENT: PHOTOGRAPHS - “Stopped Light -- Moments in Time”

March 8, 2019 to March 31, 2019.

An exhibit of matted photographs by Dagmar Swenson, on display at the Greenbelt Arts Center (GAC).

Coincidentally, this one-woman show opens on the International Day of Women-2019.

Twenty-six photos in color and black & white are available for viewing and purchase in the foyer of GAC.

--“Greenbelt News” review, excerpt by Malca Giblin (p.13):

“When audiences enter GAC they first will see photographs by artist Dagmar Swenson. She has chosen photographs that range from pretty to gritty, landscape to portrait and is not afraid to jar the viewer's sensibilities.

“This show is a facet of Dagmar's art with which you may not be familiar, but her photographic work has appeared in print internationally in such publications as the Christian Science Monitor (USA), American Music Magazine (Sweden), JETRO (Japan), the Capitol Hill Rag (DC) and more.

“The exhibit is in concert with the Pulitzer Prize winning play, 'Disgraced.'”
